Thanks Potty, Gee and San, Simbad ours was on the brink I can tell you it was a beautiful plant when we bought it, filled that pot and was very expensive, put it in the ground and it got wet and then frosted, took away all the dead parts, re-potted and kept an eye on it for 6 months and it has very slowly recovered....

Hope mine does DD, still a bit that looks ok, started pulling the dead bits off and even bits that looked alive just came away in my hand like they'd rotted at the base, still keeping my fingers crossed as had it several years and like yours had got quite large.

Oh that is such a pity, we still have it in a pot, but we have to bring it indoors through the winter......
